EJ Gauna BCC CREATIVE ARTS/WORSHIP PASTOR CANDIDATE Leader. Shepherd. As a Creative Arts Pastor, EJ embraces the responsibility of not only being a curator of beautiful things that tell the story of the Gospel but also to bring along as many people as possible in doing so. Assuring that people aren’t resources but are brothers and sisters who, collectively, can change our community with the things that we make. He is a shepherd first and a creator second. "I believe worship is simply ascribing worth to God. When we worship corporately we do this but also we encourage each other as believers. I think the expressive and passionate worship of God is a necessary ingredient in the life of someone who goes out into the world and makes disciples." -EJ Gauna VOTE ONLINE EJ's Family and Current Role EJ Gauna Currently serving (5 years) as the Creative Arts/Worship Pastor for Northeast Bible Church in San Antonio, TX (attendance=1,000+) Reason for leaving: EJ is in a larger church that he loves. He spoke with his current lead pastor about his desire to find a role that will allow his other leadership development, administrative and creative gifts to be used. With the loving support of the staff of his current church and lead pastor, he and his wife have been searching for where God may be calling them next. They believe that to be BCC. "My wife, Jazmin, and I lead as a partnership. While I have been the one on staff she is just as committed to serving our church and our team. She leads worship with me and loves our volunteers on a personal level. We have been doing ministry together for 18 years and just celebrated our 16th anniversary. We have 4 children: Isa (16), Johnny (13), Gracie (7), and Alli (1)." -EJ Gauna ​ VOTE ONLINE Worship Video Links VOTE ONLINE BCC's Process VOTE ONLINE Our former worship pastor accepted a call to another church in October. Pastor Derik and Bryce stepped up in the interim. We immediately hired the church staff consulting firm, Froot Group, to assist us in the search for our next worship pastor. Froot Group visited our church in November to attend our services and spent considerable time meeting with our staff, the Elders, the worship team and Pastor Derik. Froot Group then compiled a profile and began their nationwide search. They had overwhelming interest in the position and received many applications. They narrowed the candidates down to seven highly qualified individuals who met our criteria. In January, Froot Group spent four hours thoroughly presenting these candidates to the staff and Elders. The Elders and Pastor Derik narrowed the list down to three. Pastor Derik did lengthy one-on-one Zoom interviews with each candidate. The Elders conducted interviews with each candidate as well. The Elders and Pastor Derik met several times to pray, discern and compare notes during this process, and one candidate stood out among the rest. We invited this candidate and his wife to visit our church. They came the first weekend of March and spent three days in and out of interviews. They spent time with the worship team, the staff and attended our services. The Elders and Pastor Derik discussed and decided to make an offer the following week. The candidate wanted a week to pray over the situation with his family, as he had several other offers to consider. Pastor Derik spoke via Zoom with the candidate Monday, March 28 and he enthusiastically accepted the offer to be our new worship pastor! According to our bylaws, the final step is to have a confirmation vote of Pastor Derik's and the Elders' decision by the members of BCC. We're required to inform the congregation two weeks in advance prior to a vote. We must have a quorum of 1/3 of active voting members and a confirmation vote of 3/4 majority to make this official. This vote is important because it gives our candidate a final confirmation to move forward. If you are unsure of your membership status, please contact We would like as many who are able to vote online. Beginning Wednesday, April 13 click on the "Vote Online" button at the top of this page to submit your vote. Voting will close Sunday, April 17 at noon. For those who choose not to vote online, there will be a paper ballot station available in the Commons by the kitchen between those same dates. ​ Thank you for your prayerful consideration. We're very excited to have a great candidate!

    GROUPS INFO BCC is structured to invest in relational discipleship. Our structure and approach is different from a traditional church Sunday school model or a church with a variety of specific organized ministries. Groups can be a Bible study but they are so much more to us. ​ We believe discipleship happens best in the context of relationships. This means that trust is built in Christ-centered community. Building trust and investing in deep, meaningful relationships should be prioritized by every believer. To be a church OF groups, we must live the value: "Relationships are our priority". ​ Our primary model for congregational care is within groups. This gives us the responsibility and opportunity to serve and care for one another. Our pastors are certainly available to our congregation during times of crisis but the best care you can get in life is from those who you have been doing life with. ​ In the sections below, you can learn more about the three types of groups we have and how they function. You do not have to be member to join one and you can be in multiple groups. In order to lead a group, we ask you complete The Next Steps classes offered every Sunday morning. FIND A GROUP START A GROUP SMALL groups Small Groups are where we gather in small settings of 10-12 people and study scripture together. These can be based on a sermon series, a book of the Bible or even a video based curriculum. These types of groups gather in people's homes or at the church building. ​ These groups often will have social activities within the context of the group or may even serve their community together. FIND A GROUP social groups Social Groups are where people gather around shared interests, hobbies or other activities. These groups are a fantastic way of inviting non-Christians to spend time with believers! These types of groups will often be someone's first experience connecting with people from our church. ​ These groups are often the easiest way to help others connect relationally at BCC. FIND A GROUP CURRENT GROUPS support groups Support Groups are topic-specific groups to help people grow through challenges. These can be things like a marriage-specific group, financial management, a grief support group or parenting challenges. The intent is to help people know that they are not alone and in hearing others sharing their stories, it may help them grow in one of these areas. ​ These groups are a great way to find hope, healing and biblical solutions to life's challenges.
